Posted on 11/19/2012 11:24:08 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
Rubio says his best political friends are Jim DeMint and Jeb Bush. Good choices, I think.
GQ tries to trap Rubio into getting into social/religious/moral questions...things that hurt Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock. Rubio didn't fall for it.
They asked him about the age of the earth--an obvious ploy to get him to talk about evolution vs. creation...but Rubio says that has nothing to do with our economy and GDP...
They ask him why Republicans are so against sodomites and the perversion of marriage. He says he thinks it is wrong for one side to be able to speak up and the other is told to shut up.
I like Rubio.
I know a lot of people think he is a sell out. I don't.
great Marco interview!
Is this the Rihanna issue?
If only he were a natural born citizen!
Amnesty will guarantee conservatives wander in the wilderness for another forty years. Twenty-five million new Democrat voters is not what this country needs. And we don’t need to recruit foreign workers. Anyone seen the unemployment numbers recently? Or the huge deficits run up by socialist democrats and “compassionate” conservatives?
Just wait until the Dem Machine/MSM starts tearing him to shreds. He’ll end up looking to the average uninformed voter like a combination of Adolph Hitler and Torquemada.
He is. He was born in the US to legal residents in accordance with the 14th amendment.
They don’t want amnesty, they want free stuff.
They’ll take amnesty, but they’ll still demand the free stuff.
I’ll start listening in 2015. I’m still suffering from the Kool-aide I drank in 2012.
Marco Rubio NO THANKS! I like Walker/Cruz 2016!
Rubio was a citizen at the moment of his birth and that is all that is required.
NOBODY with any legal authority, no elected official, no judge, no immigration attorney, disagrees with me on this.
Nobody with any legal authority agrees with you.
If Rubio evolves into a serious national player, his mis-statement (if indeed it was) will milked for all it is worth.
I don’t think he’s a sell-out, and he manages to keep focused on the actual issues, and not just the economic ones, without falling into their traps.
I think he did quiet down after Romney got nominated and even when it became apparent that Romney was going to be the nominee, unfortunately. Romney obviously wanted his bland non-disruptive view of the GOP to be the one that was presented. Even Ryan had wanted to go to urban areas, including black areas, and make the economic and moral pitch, but Romney wouldn’t let him. So I guess we can’t blame Rubio for being muted during the campaign, since he obviously wasn’t going to run third party or go off on his own.
One of the problems with both Akin and Mourdock is that they made off-hand remarks that they should have known better than to make...and then defended them to the death, even knowing that it would mean the loss of these seats. This was because having the GOP win was not important to them: the only important thing to them was their ego.
Rubio does understand the need to be a party player, but I think you’ll see him emerging much more in the future or perhaps getting the party to go in a better direction. He’s a great speaker (I’ve seen him), witty and pleasant but doesn’t talk down to his audience, and can defend his points.
Amnesty will ensure the mexican illegals of free stuff until we fail as a country.
Rubio’s already hit Iowa. Seems he can’t wait to get the buzz started.
I’d be much more excited about someone like Mike Pence.
Nah, I'll pass.
Well, one out of two ain't bad, I guess.
He is. He was born in Miami of immigrant parents.
